Hate Speech Laws in Canada

Hate speech laws in Canada

Hate speech laws in Canada include provisions in the federal Criminal Code, as well as statutory provisions relating to hate publications in three provinces and one territory. The Criminal Code creates criminal offences with respect to different aspects of hate propaganda, although without defining the term "hatred".

Those offences are decided in the criminal courts and carry penal sanctions, such as fines, probation orders and imprisonment. Alberta, British Columbia, Saskatchewan and the Northwest Territories have created civil sanctions for hate speech and hate publications in their human rights legislation. Those claims are resolved through administrative tribunals or the civil courts, and can involve civil remedies such as damages or injunctive relief.

The Supreme Court of Canada has rejected constitutional challenges to the hate propaganda offences in the Criminal Code, and has also rejected challenges to the hate publication provisions in human rights legislation.


Is it time?

The Military, where are they in this equation as The Thing attempts, miserably, to foment...what??

A violent national well organized Revolution? Don’t think so. A civilian led coup will NOT happen or begin to happen, has no one been watching The Rest of the Planet that is not America, or any of The Planets human political history?

How would that work, exactly, step by step? The Kraken Klowns couldn’t even write a half decent insurrection legal memo?! And the troops that showed up at Insurrection 1.0 had zero military knowledge, or political for that matter. 2.0 going to be any better?

No, The Thing and the Minions are pissing into the digital political cyberwind. Cause they can, as no hate speech wall to stand in the way, but that’s another issue.

As I recall, the first wave of 1.0 troops washed ashore either in prison, with a criminal record, or worst of all, humiliated for life. I did not know what I was doing Your Honor, the TV and Radio made me do it!

Sleep easy, just harken to the J6 Committee and The Evidence, ladies and gentlemen of reason and logic.

The media is once again being played like a puppet on a string as are most of us by what? Cyber world half veiled cyberthreats that amount to wordether as far as the real world is concerned? Journos, and others like us at DU, repeating the nonsense only gives the nonsense oxygen. Ofc will not happen. Just had to put it on the record!

And if push comes to shove?… The Military stands guard, does it not?

Trump/Musk/MTG threads...trashed all as advised...nothing to read but my own thread!

Now I have to trash this one also?!

Isn't Musk proving by his singular control of Twitter that Twitter is a private corporation?

Therefore as a private corporation controlled by a single private human being, clearly the First Amendment has no fucks to give to apply?

Therefore any legislation designed to use the first amendment as a sword rather than a shield as intended to protect against Government restrictions, all such legislation is doomed on arrival, in the absence of federal hate speech laws.


All that is not helpful to Republicans wanting to unleash hate by explicitly regulating
social media to be even more of a wasteland of hate than it already is.

M&M standing in embarrassed pose, rejected Medals still in hand, unable to applaud. World applauds.

M&M can’t for all the world to witness. Cause of the rejected Medals in their hands!

The Universe is as it should be, at times!

Salute to the Medal Recipients!

Oil/gasoline near one year low! Corporate media has an amnesiac episode, forgets to give

Biden any credit*…hypocrites and charlatans and in the bag for the fascists!? Got that right!…the oily writing is on the Wall Street wall.


*ofc, in total truth, the Presidency alone has as much control over domestic oil and gas prices as the orbit of the Moon…but it’s nice corporate propaganda to pull out the hat as needed.

The Big Lie Dies! Welcome back, Truth, we missed you.

Once established, to paraphrase a certain very evil man, the BL must be kept alive at all cost. The death of a BL will collapse all the lies and destroy the fascism, dead. An imperative it lives.

Only evil men deploy the psychological weapons of evil for personal gain. It’s not just in America, ofc, it’s become the popular kid dictator’s political go to…America led the way!

Much evidence of the evil election BL BS the granddaddy of them all, is on life support.

Witness the latest, Gov. Ducey removing the IV drip yesterday? Not many drips left.

It feels like a great burden lifted. It must never be allowed to burden any nation again.

Once again looks like virtual tie between Democratic Party and Burn Mama's House Down Party!?


Well, when you put it that way, m hoping mass media will eventually say.
